Hi Everybody! In October of 2011, I started my Spark journey and managed to lose 25 pounds. I maintained for about 4-5 months, and then slowly, pound by pound, it crept back. I've still incorporated outdoors, exercise, and nutrition in my life, but obviously not enough! Example: I love to eat healthful foods, unfortunately I also love to eat non-healthful foods! I love to exercise, but I also love to curl up with my blanket and watch Hulu!

I finally can't ignore the scale, mirror, the way my clothes fit, or most importantly, the way I feel. Time to get back at it!

    Thank you so much for the comments on my blog and page!!

    You are so tiny!!! I bet you are smaller than I am! I'm 5'7" and this morning am 144 lbs. I have an athletic/muscular build (always have). It doesn't take much for me to develop muscles. I used to weight train a lot and enjoyed it but lately I've been just trying to get whatever I can get in as far as exercise is concerned. I either do a run (usually 2-3 miles) or I walk. Or I hike in some trails. But I REALLY recommend Bikram Yoga for toning and rapid weight loss and body-restructuring. Google it and see if there is a studio anywhere near you. It's hell and torture but it produces amazing results!!!

    Keep me updated on your progress!

    Thanks! I am doing well, life has been crazy and I have been slacking on the sparkpeople/blogging front but I actually have quite a bit to start blogging about again - I joined crossfit and am addicted! I think it's the boost that I've been needing, I got a bit comfy in my routine and xfit is anything but comfy lol. New blogs to come soon, hope you're doing well too!!! :D
